Have a look here

I, like, K1W1, am a GoreTex fan and my present Hein Gericke jacket was end of line so reasonably priced Gore Tex.

Many thanks and will do now!

Hi. I'm going for the new Oxford mondial advanced jacket and trousers.
However, if you can access ride magazine Dec 2018 issue, they have tested quite a few.
Search for the Oxford kit online, see a link to advanced rider wear and on their page you can read the ride review.

Many thanks for this  :031:! Plenty to choose from in my price range.

 Seriously considering the Oxford Mondial now! It looks like a very high qulaity jacket at a good price. Also, looks quite good, to wear for those evening exploration walks while on a touring holiday :)

Was about to pull the Trigger on the OXford, but just couldn't! I didn't like the way it looked enough. Somehow it looked too serious.

I also considered no.1 (Wolf GT-S), but looked too' cartoonish' to me.

In fact I went with no.7 on the list you linked me to, namely the Richa Infinity 2 Jacket. I think it's a great jacket for a great price. I went for Titaniun colour  :123:.

I very rarely wear my gear in situations of a hot sunny day turning into a rainy day, so the removable rain liner is a plus for me. I also wear for most of the time in 18-30 deg.C, and this jacket comes with a removable insulation liner and plenty of ventilation. It has just the right amount of pockets, without looking too tool like.

Really like its style and the 2 adjusters on the sleeves and 1 on the waist should provide plenty adjustability for layering up. Comes standard with a back protector.

I had a higher budget available, but honestly believe this is good enough for me :). As I grow up, I have come to appreciate the fact that I don't always need to go for the most expensive item I can afford, to be completely satisfied. Same reason I went with the Tiger 800XC & not a 1200, Africa Twin or a GS. If anyone is interested will let you know my honest thoughts once received.

Thanks again for all your valuable input on this great site  :031:!

No problem buddy. That's what we are here for.
Hope the new kit works for you.
Please let us know how you get on with it.
With the Oxford kit being new, I'll be doing the same.
Happy riding.
Tom
